    Cool Change of airline?

    A man was flying from Seattle to San Francisco. Unexpectedly, the plane stopped in Sacramento along the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft, the plane would re-board in 50 minutes.

    Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind. A man had noticed him as he walked by and could tell that the gentleman was blind because his Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of him throughout the entire flight. He could also tell he had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached him, and calling him by name, said, "Keith, we're in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and
    stretch your legs?"

    The blind man replied, "No thanks, but maybe my dog would like to stretch his legs."

    Picture this:

    All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses. People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were trying to change airlines!

    True story....

    My father works for Leader Dog for the Blind, here in Rochester MI and I had to forward that to him - he and all his staff got a kick out of it!
